Glaetzer The Bishop

,

A blend of fruit (100% Shiarz) from 35 year-old vines & 120 year-old vines is the key to the Bishop cuvee. The fruit from younger vines is fresh & vibrant, whilst Shiraz from the oldest blocks in the Ebenezer vineyard give structure and enhance palate profile.  Wisps of cloves, nutmeg and five spice add definition to the layers of dark stone fruits and espresso. The palate has density yet also displays savoury, textural components and fine-grained ripe tannins.

Bishop is the family name of Colin’s wife Judith. Fittingly, the sign of Venus, a symbol which has come to represent women and feminine energy, is the
centrepiece of the Bishop label. In mythology, the symbol meant the Roman goddess Venus or her Greek equivalent Aphrodite. But the sign has also been linked back to ancient Egypt – a nod to Bishop’s link to Amon-Ra and Anaperenna.
